Pumpkin Pie “Syrup”

Pumpkin pie syrup

Missing my Lattes

Before my carb controlled diet, I never thought twice about stopping at my local coffee shop and grabbing a pumpkin pie latte. They are loaded with sugar!  I figured I could just give them up and be done, but then fall rolled around with it’s crisp air and apple cider, and pumpkins everywhere.

Before I give you the recipe–I need to tell you a secret…

I don’t like a lot of artificial junk, I am a “food from as close to it’s natural state as possible” kind of gal. So I may not always do things the easy way, but you can be sure that it is the most healthy for you. I’m going to give you several options for your syrup. One has regular old sugar, another honey,  one eryrithritol+stevia (Sweet Blend) , and the last one just stevia. You could even omit the sweetener all together and just make it pumpkin pie flavoring. It will be up to you. If you like this recipe…stay tuned because later this week I will have a pumpkin pie shake made with this syrup and it is out of this world! Scroll down for the recipe for pumpkin pie creamer made from the syrup. 

I don’t have many pictures of the different methods, but I hope to update with them. For now, I wanted to get this recipe into your hands!


 

Pumpkin Spice Syrup

What you will need:

1 Cup boiling water

1/8 Cup pumpkin puree (I make my own recipe coming!)

1/2 Cup Sugar, or truvia; OR 1/3 Cup Sweet Blend, or honey; OR 1/8 teaspoon stevia

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ginger

1/16 teaspoon allspice

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1/16 teaspoon clove

tiny dash of salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

Take your pumpkin puree and boiling water and mix together in a glass measuring cup along with the sweetener of your choice. Mix up and allow to steep for a few minutes. Take a fine mesh strainer, nut milk bag, cheese cloth etc… and strain liquid into a small pot. Turn burner on low and add all spices except vanilla. Stir everything together and simmer(not boil) for around 5-10 min. If you are using sugar the syrup will coat the back of a metal spoon when ready. For the other sweeteners, you will just need to watch it and allow it to reduce slightly. Remember this is a concentrate. You can taste it to see if it is right but it will be VERY sweet. Take it off the stove and strain again add the vanilla and then refrigerate until you are ready to use! 

For a pumpkin latte, I use one cup of coffee, 4 Tablespoons cream, and 2 teaspoons of the syrup. You should add a little at a time to see how you like yours.

To make a pumpkin pie creamer. Add 1 teaspoon of syrup for each Tablespoon of heavy cream. This will make it like a commercial creamer very sweet 🙂

Enjoy! Love Diana

Notes

  2. If you don't feel like straining the second time that is ok it just may have bigger spice pieces.
  3. It may separate after it cools, just shake before using.
